David Beckham will miss tonight’s Superliga clash with Chivas of Guadlajara at the L.A. Colusium. The game was moved from the Home Dept Center to accommodate the masses of Chivas fans in the L.A. area and the Beckham mania surrounding the match. Expect an easy Chivas victory.
FC Dallas takes on Pachuca in tonight’s other Superliga match without Drew Moor, who was red carded in the 1-1 draw with Chivas on Tuesday. Dallas looked the better squad in the match and will need to bring a similar “A” game to defeat Pachuca, the 2007 Mexican Clausura and CONCACAF Champions Cup winners, as well as the 2006 Copa Sudamericana champions.
Pachuca outplayed Los Angeles on Tuesday but was beaten 2-1 thanks to some stellar individual play by Cobi Jones and Landon Donovan.
L.A.’s other MLS club, Chivas USA is flying under the radar but looks like they could be as strong as any team save Houston. A great pass by Maykel Galindo to the head of Ante Razov sunk Red Bull NY Thursday night at Giants Stadium. Preki has his team playing confident, solid soccer at the right time of the season.
Freddy Adu could not work out personal terms with Benfica and will stay in MLS for now. Expect more European clubs and perhaps Benfica again to come calling on the RSL winger before the transfer windown shuts August 31st.
Several British papers are reporting US U-20 star Danny Szetela of the Columbus Crew who scored 3 goals in the U-20 World Cup has attracted the attention of several EPL clubs.
